I bought the Chevy from Joephine Williams Dec 20th 1995 for $1600. She and her first husband bought the car at Harvey motor company in liberty, Mississippi on Sept. 11 1954. I have the original bill of sale and the drivers hand book was still in the glove box. Her first husband was J.P. Godbold, he and she were school teachers at east fork school in the 50's. He died and she remarried to a Williams and moved to brookheaven with the car, Ms. Williams drove the car for 41 years until I bought car in 1995.
